    OK. I'm puzzled...

    I'm seeing some ads popping up disguised as threads. I've not seen this before. Is this a new monetization of MO's Forum or are we being hacked?

    Hadn't noticed anything like that, might be your browser.

    What web browser are you using and are you using any ad blockers?

    I'm using Safari. Saw it twice today. 1st on the 45-70 forum and then on the 336 Forum. Both were Mazda commercials but were different. They were disguised as threads-- looked exactly as what any of our threads look like. When I came back to the forums after leaving, they were gone. I did click on one and it was an ad. Guess I should cut back on the Chivas...

    V1Rot8, have you recently viewed any auto related websites? Dealers or factory sites? If not, it could be some new sophisticated spam.

    Clear your cookies and cache and see if it doesn't stop. FWIW, I use Piriform CCleaner free version as it's very thorough in it's cleaning.

    If you don't have an ad blocker, I use Ublock and I see zero ads or popups. Free to download.

    You might run your anti-virus software as a precaution as well.
